Susan DeFreitas | 2 comments Has anyone read Richard Powers's THE OVERSTORY? I was totally blown away by this epic novel. The Moby-Dick of eco-fiction!

Ned Tillman (nedsustainableus) | 18 comments Powers creates an infinite number of mycelia (threads) that connects a wide number of engaging stories together.

Geoffrey Carter | 1 comments Superbly conceived and written. Parts of it, like the tree-sitting sequence, actually haunt me. I loved it.
